It was previously believed that veteran RB Brian Westbrook could play for the Broncos, Rams or Redskins this coming season. But that short list might have expanded.
NFL.com senior writer Steve Wyche said Thursday on “NFL Total Access” that “more teams” are now interested in Westbrook’s services, although those teams weren’t revealed to him. For now, those teams remain a mystery.
But that nugget from Wyche might help explain why Westbrook has been taking his time finding a new home this offseason.
While most remember the concussion issues with Westbrook, many don't remember he really lacked explosiveness even prior to the hits to the head. It looks like Westy will surely find a job this fall, but his days of being one of the top fantasy backs are probably gone. He could still have some value, but we'll have to wait until he signs and see what his role is.
